The tenure of Dick Jauron in Buffalo has come to an end. After a dissapointing 41-17 loss on Sunday in Nashville against the Titans, the Buffalo Bills have terminated Dick Jauron as the head coach.
“I am announcing today that I am relieving Dick Jauron from his duties as our head coach, effective immediately," said team owner Ralph Wilson in a team statement. "I have tremendous respect for Dick and thank him for all of his efforts during these past four years. While this was a very difficult decision, I felt that it is one that needed to be made at this time for the best interest of our team. We will now focus on moving forward and preparing for our game this week in Jacksonville.” The last time Wilson has fired a head coach during the regular season was Hank Bullough back in 1986, also through nine games.
